Galston trails

Galston trails Video

Graham's first outing on the mountain bike for a few weeks, we went across to Galston in the Irvine Valley, there are some very nice trails in the area if you know where to look.
Along the south side of the river, Lanfine Estate, the forest on the hill and beside Cessnock Castle.
It was a treat today in the spring sunshine with lovely dry trails, just had to watch the loose surfaces.
We found a new bit of singletrack on the south side of the wood, it starts behind the communications mast at MR-NS557355 and goes through the edge of the wood for about 1km, nice surprise.
The only 'bad' bit of the route is the push up to the Covenanters monument and viewpoint MR-NS533354, but the great view, sunshine, lunch stop and the fast road descent followed by more singletrack made it worth the effort.
